During this Covid-19 season, CSI wants to offer hope by extending our invite to all students and jobseekers for our open positions: Various internships for the remainder of Summer and the Start of Fall season for both in-office support and top positions in Marketing, Communications, Information Technology, Accounting and Medical Research and Legal/Medical Case Assistants. These positions may start as interns but may lead to part-time jobs and in many cases, full-time employment. Most importantly, it would be good to note that these positions are qualified for employment-based petition, in preparation for the forthcoming 2021-2022 H1b Fiscal year, which required a few months of processing time and starts conservatively by the end of this calendar year until the first quarter of 2021.
It is always CSI’s goal and hope to keep our clients and friends informed and up to date, through our encouraging posts and articles. We hope the following article can inspire that emotion in you!
It is often difficult to maintain Hope in these uncertain times. Some contributors are loss, chronic disease, political tensions, Covid-19, and unemployment, among many others. Sometimes, losing hope often leads to depression and suicide. Without hope, people cannot imagine an end to their struggles, it seems like it continues.
Hope gives us the motivation to continue persevering towards our end goal. It provides us with the willpower to bring about change. Hope comes easier to teens and young adults. It comes a bit more difficult to middle-aged adults and the elderly. With age comes more obstacles like recurring health or family issues.
In a study from Harvard’s “Human Flourishing Program”, researchers found that 13,000 people who are aged 66 had “more hope throughout their lives had better physical health, better health behaviors, better social support and a longer life.” (P.5.) Hope also led to fewer health problems, better social support, and a longer life.
Here are 4 suggestions to increase Hope in our lives:
- Attend or Listen to a Motivational Speech
- Engage with a Spiritual or Religious Community
- Practice Forgiveness; including forgiving yourself for past or current mistakes and be resolute for positive changes at this time.
- Find A Figure of Hope to Look Up To (Like Martin Luther King Jr. or Nelson Mandela, among others, but of course, there are a lot of inspiring people to emulate and find wisdom from.)
No matter how hard we try, there will always be life circumstances that will threaten our hope. But it is important to keep persistent hope. One day, we may be even be a Hero of Hope to others.
As CSI approaches its 27th year in the field of Employment & Immigration, we start with the rebuilding of Hope amongst ourselves, by strengthening the above 4 pointers for us to follow, even with our day-to-day challenges at work, home, and even our relationships with others and friends. During these tumultuous times, let us continue to be hopeful and positive. For this, we try to be an instrument of Hope, Determination, and Perseverance. Our doors are always open to anyone who may need opportunities at this time. Lean on us when you’re not strong. CSI is with you all the way!
